He was a real hoot. Loved his humour. And didn't know he appeared in Harry Potter, not that I'm a fan. I hear he was involved in a serious RTA recently - broke his neck apparently, so now possibly a paraplegic. Real shame if that's the case.
Your Amstrad could well become a prized classic one day, if it hasn't already reached that status. Maybe my great grandkids will even get to see it on the Antiques Roadshow - who knows?
